Abstract

* Serious hepatic injury, including liver failure or death, is possible with use of the antifungal ketoconazole (Nizoral).

* Use of oral ketoconazole is now limited to the treatment of serious fungal disorders that haven't responded to other antifungal drugs or cases in which a patient cannot tolerate other antifungals.
